Hyacinth Bean Vine 'Ruby Moon' Seeds


Dolichos lablab

We love growing this vine as an ornamental on our fences at the farm. It has beautiful dark purple stems with sweet (edible!) lilac flowers. Young tender beans can be used in stir fries and other dishes, but be sure to pick them young! Older bean husks and beans can become poisonous once they begin to dry out!
